Orygen, the National Centre of Excellence in Youth Mental Health in Australia gave attendees the lowdown on: 

  • How a wave of Australian mental health reform has opened up the opportunity to provide more accessible and effective care for young people

  • How Orygen is working with commissioners and youth mental health services across Australia to develop new models of enhanced primary mental health care for young people

  • And how an exciting new project with the World Economic Forum (WEF) will aim to develop an international model of youth mental health.

We welcomed to London:

Craig Hodges 
Craig is currently living in Geneva, where he is leading the World Economic Forum’s Youth Mental Health Interventions project, which will report back to the WEF’s annual meeting in Davos in 2020. Prior to his secondment to the WEF, Craig was Director of National Programs at Orygen, where he led the work to support the implementation of new youth mental health programs across Australia. Outside of Australia, Craig was instrumental in the establishment of Jigsaw, the national youth mental program in Ireland.
Craig Hamilton
A former member of CORC’s practice improvement team, Craig abandoned his beloved CORC colleagues for sunnier climes in early 2017. Now living in Melbourne and working at Orygen, Craig helps commissioners and service providers across Australia to implement new models of mental health care for young people. During working hours he enjoys geeking out on logic models, PROMS/PREMS, and implementation science, and in his spare time he’s completing a Master of Public Health.
